Instructions Chevron Down Chevron Forward

Sow directly in the garden as early as the soil can be made fine and loose. Plant seeds every 2", covering firmly with soil. Thin plants to 6" apart when they display 2 or 3 true leaves. As plants begin to crowd, pick individual leaves regularly for use.

Planting Depth: 0.25"

Seed Spacing: Sow Organic Black Seeded Simpson Lettuce seeds roughly 6" apart in rows.

Nutrient Care Instructions: Apply SUPERthrive once per week. Soak in solution of 1/4 tsp per gal for 15 min. or longer depending on size and type.

Suggestions Chevron Down Chevron Forward

Lettuce needs plenty of moisture. Also, fall crops may have to be started indoors since lettuce has a difficult time even germinating in hot weather. Transplant with care.
